Sweden Warns of E-Currency Scam

Sweden’s Riksbank has repeatedly raised the idea of ‘e-krona’ or digital currency in recent years, but last month reiterated that a project launched in 2017 to look into the possibility of launching such a currency had not yet been completed.

Despite that, several potentially fraudulent claims have been made about e-krona, the bank warned.

The Riksbank has also been contacted by individuals describing how they have been called by companies claiming to be selling e-kronas on behalf of the Riksbank.

It urged anyone who sees this kind of information or receives an offer to buy e-kronor to contact the bank.
